Bug Description

The server-ship/virtual-host seeds depend on qemu-kvm (previously kvm in released versions of Ubuntu). The number of dependencies for this package is raring has increased significantly:

quantal: apt-get install kvm -> Need to get 11.3 MB of archives.
raring: apt-get install qemu-kvm -> Need to get 50.4 MB of archives.

These additional 40MB of dependencies are causing the Server ISO to go oversized.

After discussing with infinity on irc, it seems this was brought in by the lm32 target. With the next upload that will be moved into qemu-system-misc, separate from qemu-system-x86, which should resolve this.
